5.2. Check уровеня engine oil

Check level of engine oil after every third stop on autorefuelling or after long movement on a highway in high rate. On time of movement or in the presence of the old engine with the raised expense of oil it is expedient to supervise oil level at least through each 1000 kilometres. Fill up stocks of oil earlier, than oil level will be established approximately in the middle between two labels measuring щупа. You Mondeo thus does not have only oil half-litre.

The constant control


    Check oil level whenever possible on the cold engine, that is before start. Thus the car should settle down on a horizontal surface. For check of level of oil нагретого the engine give it a small pause at least at a rate of five minutes – circulating oil will have enough time to gather in маслосборнике oil картера. Pull out measuring oil щуп. Be cautious at нагретом the engine: щуп it can appear very hot. Wipe щуп a pure, dry rag or a paper napkin and insert again against the stop in oil картер. Wait some instant and again pull out щуп. If level is in the top quarter between a minimum and a maximum, everything is all right. If it gets to the middle between a minimum and a maximum add oil a maximum half of litre. On the contrary, if level settles down at the bottom marks or even even more low at once add missing volume – on the basis of practical experience you Mondeo does not have not enough approximately oil litre. As a whole add so much oil that level never rose above the top label. It is too much oil also it is harmfully reflected in any engine: it through condensing surfaces and sealing rings of a cranked shaft leaves on freedom (made oily coupling, belt pulleys), or at times is soaked up by ventilation system картера and pollutes the air filter, including and an inlet path. Our recommendations: keep level constantly on a site of the top quarter. At доливке oils from large бочек use a pure funnel.


The fulfilled oil – recycling for environment protection

It is necessary to hand over the fulfilled oil in places of its acquisition. They are obliged to be engaged in its recycling. Besides it you can utilise the fulfilled oil together with the oil filter and the rags polluted by oil in special assembly points. Their addresses can be learnt in management of a community or automobile club.

Not always should be “MAX”: oil level should fluctuate between labels “MAX” and “MIN”. The maximum volume доливки between these labels makes of 0,5-1,0 litres for units Duratec. In DuraTorg-DI between labels “MAX” and “MIN” 2 litres will go in.

Interval of replacement of oil – a question of conditions of use

For all carburettor engines Mondeo the interval of change of oil through 20 000 kilometres (diesel engines through 15 000 km) is established. If you with the Mondeo go mainly on long distances it is possible to add confidently to this figure approximately 5000 kilometres. On the contrary, if move exclusively on short distances in city boundaries it is necessary to replace oil earlier: in the winter through 6000 kilometres or time in half a year – the approved cycle of replacement.

Oil replacement – when it pays off to the fan

It is independently favourable to spend replacement when the inexpensive oil of the ordered specification got in shops of autoaccessories, department stores or at a gasoline station is used. At usual change of oil (oil goes down from the oil pallet, the filter is replaced, oil is utilised on an assembly point) it is necessary to lift yours Mondeo. Quickly and purely it occurs on the autorefuelling having sucking away unit.

However this way has also the lacks: шлам remains in oil картере and without simultaneous replacement of the oil filter new engine oil gets such "gift". The Most convenient place for replacement – a special workshop. Naturally, this work is necessary for paying properly to the master: it uses, as a rule, only expensive grades of oil and includes in calculation as well recycling of the fulfilled oil. However the conclusion of the corresponding contract can appear more favourably. Preliminary carry out own calculations. It can often appear that execution of this work in workshops even at replacement of oil and the oil filter is more favourable, than all it to get most.

How many oil it is necessary for yours Mondeo at each replacement

The engine
Engine oil with фильтром*
4,3 litres
5,5 litres
6,5 litres

*масляный the filter should correspond to engine type (Duratec-HE, Duratec-VE, DuraTorg)

Use only original filters.
